How to choose carpet by room
Before updating your home with carpet, it’s important to decipher which room it’s going to be for. You will need to consider the space, your lifestyle and the underlay - all of these factors will help you decide which carpet to choose.
At Carpet Barn, we are proud to offer an extensive range of carpet in a number of different patterns, colours and textures. Take a look at our guide below for the types of carpet we recommend by room.
Living Room carpet
If your flooring is to live up to the everyday hustle and bustle of family life, choose a carpet that is hardwearing and durable. There are a variety of carpet types available in our range, designed to withstand even the most intense and challenging environments. For example, polypropylene carpets are stain-resistant and bleach-cleanable, forcing stains to sit on top of the carpet pile instead of penetrating the fibres.
Halls, Stairs and Landing carpet
Probably the most high-traffic areas in the house, the carpet you choose for your hallways, stairs and landing will need to be able to overcome everyday wear. Choose a carpet which combines practicality with style to suit these busy areas of the house. Opting for a patterned or coloured carpet will help to disguise dust and dirt and is a clever way to minimise the problem.
Your bedroom is usually the place in the house where you can afford to treat yourself to a bit of luxury. Transform your bedroom with gorgeous colours, soft textures and bold patterns. Our carpet styles include plain, striped, patterned and flecked carpet. Carpet makes the ideal choice for the bedroom because of the warmth and comfort they provide.
Because of their bathing facilities, bathrooms are prone to high-moisture levels. Once moisture gets in and under carpeting—and especially in the padding—mold, and mildew can develop. If you’re considering carpet for your bathroom, ensure that you choose a water-resistant and anti-slip carpet. And because bathrooms are predisposed to potentially harmful bacteria as a result of prolonged moisture, it's important that you regularly clean your carpets.
